Yeah, seriously. This is actually great for the only people I care about, CS and Snowing. They are together and happy with all their friends, Emma gets another chance to be a mom with a child who's hopefully gonna be less annoying and will have zero Bagel genes, and they don't even have to pretend to be friends with Regina and Rumple anymore. If someone had asked me to say what my ideal ending was for OUAT, I would have totally said this while being resigned to the fact that Emma would NEVER get rid of Regina. AND YET SHE DID.
Of course, A&E did all this *without* meaning to create the greatest happy ending ever. Their obsession with Rumple and Regina, for once in their/our lives, played out in our favour.
EDIT: also, you know what's gonna be great?
How they're doing the above because they want to make Ivy the new Abigail and instead they'll have people shipping Henry and Ivy because they're that incompetent. Quote me on this, people WILL ship this more than they ship him with Murderella.
